In the preceding two seasons of Prime, the presence of the Autobots and Decepticons and their ongoing conflict, was largely kept a secret from the human population of Earth. The Autobots had their base in an out-of-the-way location and remained as inconspicuous as possible when going out among humans. Meanwhile, the Decepticons were content to fly around in their ship, most of them had Earth alternate modes and they didn't cause much trouble near human settlements. Any slip-ups and/or sightings were cleared up by the combined efforts of Agent Fowler, Raf and Silas (in the case of MECH). Now, going into Season 3, we have Spoiler a massive Decepticon fortress located on Earth. Yes, it's in an area far from major population centers, but it's still a huge structure and should be noticed rather quickly...especially if anyone decides to investigate the preceding energy blast or the military moves to attack it. So, the question is whether this is going to lead the population of Earth to discover the existence of the Transformers. If not, how will the writers explain the TFs still remaining a secret? Will they explain it? And, if the secret is revealed, will it be a major plot point in Season 3?
